While posing for a photo-op with senior military leaders and their spouses on Thursday night, President Donald Trump made an ominous prediction that the gathering could be the "calm before the storm".

Since the Trump came into power, he desperately wants to remove the nuclear pact and get rid of the limits it imposes on the USA ability to exert more hostile policies against Iran.

However, storm was talking about trump, might also apply to North Korea.

The move could lead to renewed U.S. sanctions against Iran, unnamed senior administration officials said.

"Give us a hint on your Iran decision", another reporter asked.

If the administration does not recertify by the deadline that Tehran is in compliance with the agreement, the Republican-controlled Congress would have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Tehran suspended under the accord.

"The president is going to make an announcement about the decision that he's made on a comprehensive strategy that his team supports, and we'll do that in the coming days", Sanders said.

However, U.S. officials say Trump's objective in decertifying the deal is to intensify the heat on Iran, with the threat of military force, restoring old sanctions and imposing new ones, thereby getting the regime to accept fixes to the deal.

Trump, who has previously described the deal as an "embarrassment" to the U.S., has repeatedly said the agreement is not beneficial to the country.

The agreement primarily calls on Iran to curb its uranium enrichment program so it can no longer be able to build a nuclear bomb.

"In a dinner w/ military officials @POTUS says" this is the calm before the storm".

Earlier in the evening, Mr Trump has said they would be discussing the most pressing military issues facing the country, including tensions with North Korea and Iran.

"You guys know what this represents", Trump asked the press as he pointed around the room, another journalist wrote of the incident.

Trump's secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, and national security adviser, HR McMaster, are both thought to have advised Trump not to withhold certification.
